A Kingston institution since 1963!
Close proximity to the Agnes Etherington Art Centre and Lake Ontario waterfront path make the Grad Club the ideal place to stop for food and drink on campus. The menu is diverse as they offer both standard pub fare and creative healthy options. Their taps carry the best local micro-brews, and they have one of the best patios in town. The Grad Club is open to everyone: students, Kingston residents, and visitors from out of town.
The Grad Club is nestled in a heritage building among the beautiful limestone architecture at Queen’s University.
A beloved Kingston live music venue.
With the sounds of guitars and pianos from the old Houses still echoing across campus, the new Grad Club rekindled the tradition of live music as a major part of grad student life. An open mic night has long been a staple of the Club’s events, though it has transitioned through various forms, and the ground floor concert space is renowned as a venue to see both up and coming Canadian acts and established artists looking to play smaller and more intimate shows.
In fact, CBC Radio listeners named the Grad Club one of the Top 10 Canadian music venues in 2009, which is not surprising given that the Club has played host to some of the country and Kingston’s most celebrated acts!
